The HCT-Ras Al Khaimah Men’s campus (RKM) sporting fields were the venue for an action-packed, high-spirited 7-A-Side Football tournament, convened by the RKM Student Life Sports Department.
It was a grueling full of action 10- game football match played by about 50 football-fanatic students and faculty & staff. A single round robin format in the elimination round made 2 top teams in each group advanced to the semi-final. A cross-pairing to the final round was implemented where top four teams eventually made it to the semi-final round, namely Royal team (Engineering dept.), IT, Faculty & Staff, and Advance Team.
The Championship match was hard-fought between Royal Team and IT team. The well- fuelled Royal team prevailed as the 7 A-Side Football champs with a 2-0 margin in the regulation time. Advance Team took the Bronze outdoing the Faculty and Staff 2-0.
Special awards were garnered by the Falcon Team for Fair Play while Royal Team’s Majed Sultan Al Shehhi, Abdulla Hasan Al Shehhi and Salim Ebraheem Al Shamsi got the Top Scorer, Best Goalkeeper and Best Player of the tournament respectively.
Special thanks to Dr. Saif Almheiri (Director of RAK Colleges), Taleb Obaid (RKM Head of Services) and Randa Alzaabi (Supervisor of RAK Colleges Student Life) for their support in the said event and to the RKMC Sports program.
